QUAD has a selection of events to tie in with its summer exhibitions.

The events include Talks, Tours and Late-night openings, a Conspiracy Club and also Instagram Live tours which can be followed online.

The events accompany three new exhibitions currently in QUAD. 

SEEK PRAY ADVANCE: Episode 3 – Operation Starlight is an exhibition by artist Megan Broadmeadow, which is based on real-life testimonies from those who have purportedly had encounters with beings from other worlds, dimensions and realms, across multiple periods in history.

In QUAD Extra Gallery Spaces, Made/Unmade is a group show of mixed-media works by East/West Midlands based artists in response to an open call that queried how we as a species affect the world around us, and how that world in turn affects us.

Home-Grown 2019 showcases digital and traditional photography from Derby’s schools and young people, including local schools St Martins School, Horizons Sixth Form, St Clare’s School, Derby Moor Academy, Da Vinci Academy, The William Allitt School, plus work by #ThisIsDerby web Team.
